    I started this on friday and have the star part done..now to do the borders. This is a commission quilt for my friends..they wanted yellow and black.. all i could think of was BUMBLEBEE :(.. I used a couple black background fabrics but also a black/brown . I really wasn't sure about the brighter yellows...but knew they wanted bright yellow. I am thinking it is coming out pretty well. I KNOw they will love it I sent them some fabric swatches in the mail and have only used three of those.. so it will be a surprise when it is done. They gave me free rein ..to add whatever. I have a nice black fabric that will be a framer that will make it all pop i hope.

    That looks awesome. I'm so glad you posted it. My avatar is a variation of that same layout in the size of a baby quilt. I'm wanting to do one a little bigger for grandson's bigboy bed, but I wasn't sure how it might look. Now I know!

    I love it, and I'm not even a yellow person! It almost makes me want to make one. And I can't wait to see it with the black border.

    Beautiful, I want to make a quilt using blacks and reds and was a little afraid to tackle such contrasting colours but you certainly have mastered that with this project

    I thought of Bumblebee, also when you said the colors! This is terrific, and I can't find the BumbleBee in it at all! Great job with the points!

    This is really nice. You achieved the three dimensional effect with it also. Not every one does that.
    Will be looking forward to seeing if with borders on.

    It looks great! Nothing bumble bee-ish about it.
